ABT Sportsline Upgrades VW Golf GTD

ABT Sportline

The Volkswagen and Audi aftermarket tuning specialist has just released details for its new VW GTD program.

In addition to the new Volkswagen GTI, the diesel-powered GTD version also packs quite a punch for those wanting an oil-burning hot hatch. Aftermarket tuner ABT Sportsline has already released details of its upgrade program for the new GTI but today it’s unveiling a host of improvements for the upcoming GTD as well. Like its GTI counterpart, the ABT GTD features a more aggressive body kit consisting of a new front spoiler, grille and side skirts.

Under the hood, the tuner upgraded the 2.0-liter turbo diesel’s output from 181 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque to 207 hp and 317 lb-ft. The upgrade package is finished off with a four-pipe exhaust, rear skirt insert as well as 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels. Official performance figures and pricing were not released.
